"For I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord."
[ Romans 8:38 & 39]
"It is never enough to Love someone ; That someone has to know that they are Loved."
[ St. Francis de Sales ]
It is the best of times , and the worst of times....
Humanity has soared to phenomenal heights in the arts and sciences and in the realms of discovery and understanding , yet plummetted to the most despicable, monstrous, reprehensibly depraved depths....
Never before in the History of the One, Holy, Catholic & Apostolic Church has the World needed the Truth, Love, Beauty & Hope encapsulated within the Mystical Body of Christ more than it does now - It is time for us to bear witness , stand erect and Live the Life of Love and Truth demanded from us by Our Lord and Saviour. Sometimes we have strayed, sometimes we have been led astray ; we have been guilty of terrible things : neglect, presumption, despair, narcissism, pragmatism, selfishness, indifferentism, cowardice...the list is endless. Both clergy and laity have sinned ; guilty of innumerable mendacities and distortions of the Truth - The Person of Christ. We have neglected the poor, the sick, the lonely, the ignorant, the afraid and those who feel unloved.
May God forgive us.
We forever deceive and delude ourselves with bogeymen for adversaries; fighting the wrong battles with the wrong weapons against the wrong people and wrong phenomena.
The war is simple : It's on a Spiritual Plane ; a battle of Light and dark, Good and evil....The Victory is ours through the Passion, Death and Resurrection of God Incarnate. Yet in its aftermath we continue in the skirmishes against evil's deathpangs which seek to destroy us all. The battle continues no place more critically than within ourselves.
But we are not alone....Nothing is insurmountable. Amidst all the trials and tribulations there is one thing the Enemy cannot take away from us....
